Crib, Bassinet, Carriage, Playpen, Changing Table
The crib for your baby must have slats or bars no more than 2-3/8 inches apart, no unsafe design features, and a snug-fitting mattress. To avoid blocking your baby's breathing, do not have pillows, large, fluffy toys, blankets, or loose plastic sheeting in the crib, bassinet, carriage or playpen.

Cover the mattress with a waterproof cover, quilted pad, and well-fitting, soft baby sheet. Healthy infants should be placed on their back when put to sleep. Always be with your baby while he is on a flat surface above the floor unprotected by side rails, to avoid injury from falls. Keep one hand on your baby while he is on the changing table.
